Projekt Ilaiyaraaja Season III — 70/365 — Idhu Maanodu
Arunmozhi (aka Napoleon) is a fantastic find by Ilaiyaraaja. Apart from being a brilliant flautist, he has sung many songs for Ilaiyaraaja and other composers. He became the staple voice for Parthiban.
This song is one of the unnoticed swaying melodies of Ilaiyaraaja genre. The song has both the flute (don’t think Napoleon played it or did he?) and some fantastic singing from Arun Mozhi and Uma Ramanan.
The video has Raju Sundaram in a weird hairstyle ;)
